Comox Valley Tour de Rock member Colleen Henry has been working hard all summer to raise money for the annual ride for cancer research. There’s been a trickle down effect within her family.

Her children, Ashton and Brady, are getting involved in the fundraising.

“Both Ashton and Brady are raising money for Tour de Rock,” said Colleen. “Ashton will be shaving his head; their cousin, Sierra Henry will be cutting her beautiful long hair; Peter Crawford, also a student at Ecole Robb Road is shaving his head and another young lady, Ashlyn Smart will also be cutting her beautiful long hair - the hair cutting and shaving will take place in September.”

These youngsters will contribute to their own fundraising campaign this Friday, with a barbecue starting at 5 p.m. at Park Drive Park located between Comox Ave. and Beaufort Ave. off of Beach Drive in Comox.

“We will have hot dogs, hamburgers, lemonade, iced tea, water and games for the kids,” said Colleen. “All by donation except the lemonade and iced tea which will be a set price. There will be Tour de Rock riders present, t-shirts and hats for sale. It’s sure to be a great time! bring all of your family and friends!”
